The Luhimba Project has long experience of addressing the health needs of the people of Luhimba, and recently Paul was able to use WhatsApp to save a life. He writes "We help as many sick people as we can and have saved many lives in this way. In the early days of the project it was difficult, because communication was so complicated and slow and the language barrier didn’t help.
But now as everyone has mobile phones and we have WhatsApp, things are so much easier. Also, most younger people in the village, especially those whom we have helped go to college or university, speak English fluently and can pass on messages with no problems
A good example of this happened just a couple of weeks ago. Atwaya and Dianarose both called me one evening and told me that a young girl called Leah, who suffers from cerebral palsy, needed an emergency operation to remove a cyst from her stomach. The operation would cost about £80 but it could be life-saving. I immediately sent the money to Atwaya via Western Union. With Western Union the cash is ready to pick up in 5 minutes!
Leah’s parents took her to the hospital the following morning. By lunchtime she had had the operation and is now fully recovered. A few years ago all that would have been out of the question."

04/12/20 9788 Somerset: Ongoing Amazon Scam Calls.

Unfortunately one of our members has fallen foul to this scam. They received a call claiming to be from Amazon and that a payment request had been made on their account from a company in London and were they aware of any such transaction?. Clearly not aware, the caller stated they must have been hacked and went through a lengthy procedure at the end of which the member checked their online bank account to find a substantial amount of money had been removed.

Please NEVER give out any personal details to anyone claiming to be from Amazon or any other company that calls you out of the blue. Terminate the call and call back on a number you trust and preferably from a different phone, if this is not possible then wait at least 5 minutes for the line to disconnect.
